Air switch on air brake cylinder

Anyone know why there are two air switches on the air brake master cylinder and two separate brake sense wires?

The brake system is a dual system.

One tank can be damaged and the other air system, thru control valves, will supply air to all brakes.

If they only had one brake light switch, it would not cover both systems, in the event of a failure.
